Sounds really great but just hope you're not holding your breath. Flea had to get in Young's car for the demonstration because it currently takes the trunk of his car to hold all the necessary hardware.
2013 sounds remarkably optimistic as a target date for getting it down to something you hold in your hand.

Sure. A prototype, mock-up, what have you. It's solid salesmanship.
But we're talking a timeline for when these things start getting made for real and turning up under Christmas trees.
This article ran in the New York times earlier this month:

"Right now, it needs a trunk full of gear, but Young and Roberts are working with a British manufacturer to come up with a portable version."
